Going the other way : lessons from a life in and out of major-league baseball by Billy Bean( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the only openly gay former major-league baseball player comes a chronicle of America's national pastime, and an intimate memoir of a man who learned to follow his own path. A relentless work ethic, exceptional multi-sport talent, and a quick left-handed swing got Bean into the big leagues--playing in the majors from 1987 to 1995 for the Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Dodgers, and San Diego Padres. Bean brings us inside the clubhouse and onto the playing field, offering insight into the game and the physical and emotional demands it makes on players. His forthright portraits of baseball icons--legendary managers Sparky Anderson and Tommy Lasorda, slugging stars Kirk Gibson and Tony Gwynn, and all-star pitchers Jack Morris and Trevor Hoffman, among others--illuminate what it takes to be great. But Bean also had a secret: he was a gay man in a brutally anti-gay world.--From publisher description
